    I feed my ducks their grains (whole wheat) in shallow trugs of water. The grains soften in the water and make it easier for the ducks to eat.

    I've tossed it to my ducks (and chickens) like you would with scratch and they seemed to enjoy it. I just make sure they have ample grit available. My ducks enjoy black oil sunflower seeds (BOSS), even more...and the shells are no problem for them.
